Rustic Cottage Style by Altius Architecture

The lure of the great outdoors is hard to resist with this rustic cottage style by Canadian architects Cathy Garrido and Andy Thomson, of Toronto-based Altius Architecture. This lake house in picturesque Perth, Ontario isn’t exactly what we would call “roughing it” in the great outdoors. The 2,000-sq.-ft. cottage design features rustic yet refined details like exposed wood-beam ceilings, a wood-burning stove and expansive sliding-glass doors that maximize the natural views and open onto a wrap-around deck. Living areas are situated downstairs, to promote socialization between family and friends, while the private living spaces are upstairs. Throughout, “cottage-chic” is definitely the flavor of this forest home, which boasts a casual, timeless feel that takes you a million miles away from the hustle and bustle.
